MADRID - Spanish motorcycle rider for Honda, Dani Pedrosa, broke a bone in his right hand during the first day of MotoGP preseason training sessions in Sepang, Malaysia, yesterday, and will have to return to Spain for treatment.

Despite falling twice - the second fall causing the hand fracture, as well as his motorcycle to catch fire - Pedrosa finished with the second-best time at the Sepang circuit.

It is still unknown when Pedrosa - who won three world titles in inferior categories and who was runner-up last year in the MotoGP title race - will be able to ride again.
